So, although this was meant to be a summer project, summer of 2008 that is, here's my entry for project number 1. Check out the details of the challenge and the entries at Deryn Mentock's blog:
I listed this necklace for sale tonight on my Etsy shop. Will I continue on through the rest of the book? Stay tuned.

I love, love, love Halloween! It is absolutely my favorite holiday ever. We have only recently relocated to Illinois and we are living in a house built in the 1800s; I was hoping to encounter some friendly spirits here but other than the neighbors, no such luck. We found some VERY friendly spirits last weekend in the Chicago area and held an impromptu pumpkin carving class. It was quite a mixed group of gender and age and it is safe to say a good time was had by all. Worth mentioning -- these are all first-time pumpkin carvers and their results were magnificent!
Thanks to my sister, Joy, for the wonderful treats, great decorations and a fire to take the chill off!

A fine day made even better when you can enjoy it with a friend!

I have a peculiar habit that is shared among many jewelry artists I've spoken with -- that of hoarding beads we are especially fond of. This bracelet represents the last of my purple turquoise. I'm sure it will go to a good home.
Here's a sneak peak of our new "crib," our cozy living room.
